Lancaster City Park Bioblitz - Workshop for potential partners - 2:00pm, Thursday 7th March, The Storey (Auditorium), Meeting House Lane, Lancaster
Following the Beyond the Castle activities in 2012 and the continuation of the feasibility study, it is proposed to hold a Bioblitz on the Lancaster City Park site on Saturday 18th May 2013. For those of you who aren't familiar with the City Park, a plan showing the site boundary is attached here.
The Bioblitz event is intended to help map the ecology and wildlife of the City Park as well as continuing to involve the local community in developing the future of the area. It is likely to involve a range of activities that can include anything from identifying birds at dawn, to bats at dusk, and many other events in between. Further information regarding what a Bioblitz is and why one is planned at Lancaster City Park is attached here.
Details of the activities for the Bioblitz are being developed now, but to do this the organisers need the help of partners and individuals who may be able to contribute resources, time or ideas to make the day enjoyable and informative for all those taking part. If you are interested in having an input into developing the activities that will run as part of the Bioblitz, a workshop is being held at 2pm on Thursday 7th March in The Auditorium at The Storey, Meeting House Lane, Lancaster.
For those who can't make this event but are still interested in contributing towards the day please contact Faiyaz Laly on 01772 (5) 35928 or e-mail Faiyaz.laly@lancashire,gov.uk
We will post more information once details of the event have been finalised.
If you plan to attend the event on 7th March please confirm by e-mailing Faiyaz Laly at the e-mail address above.
